Post New Ford Mondeo revealed, will debut in Geneva

Click for photo gallery showing all 3 bodystyles

var digg_url = ' es_gallery_included'; The photos have been leaking all weekend, well ahead of the Valentine's Day embargo date; such is the love being shown for Ford of Europe's all-new 2008 Mondeo. Fully restyled using Ford's Iosis-style "kinetic design" language (to use the Oval's marketing-speak), the new car will go on sale in June as a 4-door sedan, 5-door hatch (as seen in Casino Royale) , and a station wagon.

Four trim levels -- Edge, Zetec, Ghia, and Titanium X -- will be offered, with Ghia and Titanium X representing the top of the line. The car's modern exterior is matched by a swanky passenger cabin that boasts features such as ambient lighting and premium-feeling materials on the various touch surfaces, Available goodies include a keyless entry and start system that makes use of the ever-more-popular start button, and a new graphical interface in the instrument panel.The car is quieter, too, with overall noise cut 3 decibels across the board.

Power comes from a range of seven available engines, the top performer being the 2.5L 5-cylinder Duratec good for 220 horsepower. It's mated to a six-speed manual transmission. We at Autoblog sincerely hope Alan Mulally finds a way to get this new Mondeo over to North America. We don't care if it sports a Ford, Lincoln , or Mercury badge. Call it Edsel for all we care. Just make it happen one way or another, okay?

The official unveiling occurs in Geneva next month, when you can expect to see a lot more info on the car. For now, you can get acclimated with the preliminary press release after the jump.
